Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner defends Stranger Things actor after backlash

As Yahoo Entertainment notes, Turner's comments come in the wake of a similar Twitter tirade from "Stranger Things" actress Shannon Purser, who fired back at someone who called co-star Finn Wolfhard "heartless" for not stopping for a photo.

Commenters accused Ms. Michael of being inappropriate and sexualizing a 14-year-old, prompting the model to apologize in another now-deleted post.

In a lengthy series of tweets she pointed out that Finn is still a child and that the grown-up fans should bear this in mind before criticising him for failing to interact.

"Imagine. you, a parent, walking with your 13-year-old son/daughter and seeing a fully grown adult pointing their camera phone at your kid".

With the success of Netflix's Stranger Things the show's cast has been thrust into the celebrity spotlight at a very young age, but it seems that some fans forget that these kids are just kids. Season 2 of the show recently hit the streaming service.

Sophie Turner's response comes on the heels of a video posted to social media - which has since been made private - that shows a group of fans waiting outside Finn's hotel on two separate occasions. It doesn't matter if that child happens to be an actor and consented to a professional film crew capturing their moves when in character. "That does NOT mean that this child consented to being followed around with a camera in their face". "Doesn't that go against everything we teach our children anyway?" she added.

"In this instance, it has become clear to me that asking a character "to call in four years" and inappropriately tagging the underage actor who plays the character (Mike) was upsetting, suggestive and concerning for my audience".

"So, from one big sister to the world, don't you dare make young actors feel guilty or indebted to you because they couldn't say hi". "We really love the fans. And if you can't handle them needing space, stay away".
